"Feminist Theory: A Reader represents the history, intellectual breadth, and diversity of feminist theory. The selections are organized into five historical periods from the 18th century to the early-2000s and include key feminist manifestoes to help readers see the link between feminist theory and application. The collection presents feminist thought, from its inception, as the province of women of different races, classes, nationalities, and sexualities in order to demonstrate the continuity in feminist theory discussions. A lexicon of the debates - clear, concise explanations of twelve key concepts that characterize the development of feminist thought since its inception - provides a vocabulary of important feminist theory terms and puts that vocabulary in context."--BOOK JACKET.
